NS-15 Mission to Conduct Astro-Rehearsal for Future Manned Flights

Inside The Capsule During The Flight Will Be Mannequin Skywalker

Blue Origin’s New Shepard NS-15 flight is targeting liftoff on Wednesday, April 14, from Launch Site One in West Texas. The launch window opens at 10:15 AM CDT / 15:15 UTC. Building on the incremental and consecutive mission successes for the vehicle over the course of the program’s flight history, NS-15 is a verification step for the vehicle and operations prior to flying astronauts. During the mission, astronaut operational exercises will be conducted in preparation for human space flight. The primary operations will entail Blue Origin personnel standing in as astronauts entering into the capsule prior to launch. These astronauts will climb the launch tower, get into their seats, buckle their harnesses, and conduct a communications check from their seat with CAPCOM, the Capsule Communicator. The tower operations team will prepare the capsule cabin for launch and then briefly close the capsule hatch. The astronauts will then exit the capsule prior to launch.

Gary “Dave” DeVore: Photographer  This is Gary’s first year as part of the Aero-News team. Gary got hooked on photography at the age of 10 when his father gave him his first camera.

Also: Western Global Pilots, Tamarack Touts Aiken, Metro Delivers EC145E, FRASCA On TH-73A Program

One of the new aircraft you might see at Sun ‘n Fun next week is an exceptionally stout Czech LSA by the name of the Skyleader 600. Distributed by SkyleaderUSA’s Michael Tomazin, the Rotax powered two seater is not your average bargain basement LSA... and boasts some pretty extensive and well-thought-out refinements, including a very slick canopy mechanism and one of the neatest trailing edge wing-steps we've ever seen. UPS, together with its UPS Flight Forward subsidiary, has reported plans to purchase electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft from Beta Technologies (BETA) to augment its air service for select small and mid-size markets.
